At a glance

We can make a standard will for you for a fixed price of £145 plus VAT*.

We provide standard mirror wills for £245 plus VAT*. Mirror wills are virtually identical wills where, typically, one person in a couple leaves their estate to the other and vice versa. A standard mirror will will leave everything to their spouse and then their children.

We can provide you with a quote for complex wills, for example those involving numerous properties, trusts, international assets or other complicating aspects.

We provide a fixed fee for a grant of probate (where there is a will) or letters of administration (where there is no will) for £500 plus VAT* and expenses (sometimes called disbursements and typically around £200) for estates with a gross value under £1m and the majority of the assets transferring to a surviving spouse or civil partner. For estates where the gross value is over £325,000 and no assets are being transferred to a surviving spouse or civil partner the fee is £850 plus VAT* and expenses.

We provide Lasting Powers of Attorney for £350 plus VAT* for one document or £550 plus VAT* for two documents.

How our wills and probate solicitors can help you

Our private client lawyers can help you with a range of legal issues you might be faced with. Our approach to private client law is focussed on providing our clients with top quality legal advice to help them to manage their affairs, or those of living or deceased relatives. Here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors our private client lawyers can help you when it comes to drafting a will, dealing with the process of obtaining Probate, executing a will, the administration of a dead person’s estate and also with matters concerning the care of living relatives.

The professional expertise of a private client lawyer can help you to avoid many of the problems commonly encountered by people when dealing with this area of law without the benefit of professional legal advice. Particularly common issues our private client lawyers come across can include problems in a will that may make it invalid or that may cause unexpected problems if family members have been left out unintentionally. Affording care in old age, whilst also safeguarding your home, is another area of private client law that can cause confusion for people who don’t have a private client lawyer working for them.

The private client law section here on the Canter Levin & Berg website contains more detailed information on some the various services we can provide for our private legal clients. If you would like more information on an aspect of private client law not covered on our website, you can call our private client lawyers for a consultation or alternatively you can fill in the contact form here on the website and a member of our client law team will get back to you to discuss the matter.
